The Washington Post is pleased to announce the addition of award-winning journalist Barkha Dutt to the Global Opinions section as a contributing columnist.

Ms. Dutt is a New Delhi-based author, columnist, reporter  and presenter with India’s NDTV. She is the host of the popular television talk shows “We the People,” and the Emmy-nominated “The Buck Stops Here.” The Association for International Broadcasting recognized her as the International TV Personality of the Year in 2012, calling her “a reporter of considerable stretch and depth, still passionate and fearless in bringing the issues closer to her viewers.”  She has twice appeared on the World Economic Forum’s list of 100 Global Leaders of Tomorrow, and serves on the Global Council of the Asia Society. She completed her Master’s degree from the Columbia School of Journalism in New York.

The Global Opinions section is part of The Post’s wider effort to increase its international presence by expanding its offerings of quality journalism, commentary, and video projects from and about other parts of the world. Since its launch in the spring, more than a dozen columnists from around the world have joined Global Opinions as contributors, and we look forward to adding more.
